Right, my point was that you can use w3m to read HTML e-mail, which
seemed to be what you were asking about in your original post.  As
someone else pointed out, you can toggle inline graphics in w3m so
that you can see them.  For looking at real Web sites, though, I just
have Emacs/Gnus pass the URL to Camino; I could probably use it for
HTML e-mail, too, but since 99.5% of the HTML e-mail I receive is
spam, why bother?
